Judy Chicago: 'Immolation' from 'Women and Smoke'

ISBN13/Barcode: 642633059071

We are pleased to announce that the November – January issue of Flash Art is now out.

Bodily figuration features prominently in this issue of Flash Art, which includes Judy Chicago’s Immolation (1972) from her “Women and Smoke” series (1968–74) on its cover. The work counts among those Chicago made before taking up the central core imagery that constitutes her landmark 1974–79 work The Dinner Party, with which she is often narrowly identified. On the occasion of “Judy Chicago: A Reckoning,” a major survey opening at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, this December, Flash Art invited Géraldine Gourbe, Viki D. Thompson Wylder, William J. Simmons, and Stephanie Seidel to reflect on Chicago’s practice and legacy. This special dossier seeks to supplement the artist’s popular recognition with a plurality of critical voices.

This issue also features an essay by Thomas Duncan on the work of Antek Walczak, who writes that the artist “clearly exploits painting as a means of working through technological systems, social networks, and the omnipresent forces of capitalism,” while also appearing “distrustful of painting’s ability to properly channel these ideas outside the realm of art.”
